Franco Berardi Bifo is an italian Marxists philosopher, writer and activist. Apocalypse Wow! is a short film, more precisely a video documentation of a performance happened the 17 march 2018 in Delphi (Greece). First of all Franco is a friend, one day he called asking to read his last poem “Ode to capitalism”, a strange mix of delirium and sharpness; his plan was to organize the last public event of his life before leaving the scene forever. So we decided to set up his last appeareance in Delphi at the sacred temple, and he was pretty happy to play the role of the Delphi’s oracle predicting and celebrating the contemporary apocalypse. A group of students came from the Sandberg institute of Amsterdam for a month of workshop in Greece. They’ve been the audience of this oracle-happening at the beginning of their journey. The performance started at sunshine and Franco red the poem to the students for the first time. We tried to empower Bifo’s speech working with sound and music composition.
